It’s time to start your journey as a Montessori educator! Each June, we begin with a new cohort in our Montessori training program.

Enrollment Dates

Application Deadline: May 1

Summer Intensive: Seven weeks of in-person classes begin the second week of June, continuing through July (with the week of July 4th being online).

Fall & Spring Practicum: Online classes with in-person teaching practicum run August through May.

Admissions Criteria

For admission to CMTC, candidates must submit their official college transcripts. As a Christian program, 6 credits of Bible/Theology courses are required as a graduation requirement.  If you have not previously completed these, you may enroll in BGU’s Montessori Bible courses to fulfill this requirement. If you have not completed a college level Child Development course, this will also be added to your course list at BGU.

If an adult learner joins the program having an Associate’s degree, they will be eligible to earn an Associates level credential. Adult learners who complete the program with a Bachelor’s Degree will receive a full Montessori credential.

A minimum cumulative college GPA of 2.5 is required for acceptance.

Admissions Process

Students must complete/submit the following for admission to CMTC:

  • A completed BGU application
  • Application fee of $50
  • An official copy of college transcripts
  • A copy of Montessori credentials (if applicable)
  • Two letters of recommendation
  • A current resume or curriculum vitae
  • A 300-word vision statement of why you are pursuing a Montessori education. Describe your immediate and long term goals upon receiving your Montessori credential
  • A photocopy of a current government issued photo ID
  • A signature of receipt and acknowledgment of the CMTC Student Handbook, including policies and procedures

Transfer of Credit

Students may request “Child Development,” along with a maximum of 6 earned Bible and Theology undergraduate-level credits may be transferred from an accredited institution. Students may petition for the acceptance of transfer credits after being accepted into the program. All credits petitioned will be evaluated by the academic dean as to their eligibility for program requirements. Official transcripts must be submitted for courses to be reviewed for transfer, and a grade of C or higher is required.
